THE PRODUCT: Iman Skin Tone Evener BB Creme SPF 15
THE PROMISE: Formulated to brighten, hydrate and protect skin, this BB creme has ingredients such as grape seed oil, acai and Vitamin A to fight fine lines and wrinkles as well as Vitamin C and licorice root extract to brighten the complexion.
THE TRUTH While everyone has been obsessed with BB creams for the past year or so, those of us with darker skin tones have had to watch from the sidelines.
But with her lustworthy cosmetics line for those with tan, olive and brown complexions, it was only a matter of time before supermodel Iman came to our rescue with a new BB cream of her own. But has it been worth the wait?
The BB claims to even your skin tone and fabulously, it does just that. Hello flawless coverage!
Even though the BB Creme is only available in six shades for now, they do mix well if you struggle to find the right match.
I have to warn you however, there is a downside. If you have oily skin, this isn’t a great buy. The “light, satiny coverage” promised on the bottle can make you look very shiny indeed, especially if you don’t have oil blotting sheets in your handbag.
That said, I do love that it includes SPF 15 for all-day protection against UVA and UVB damage, a must have considering the heatwave!
BUY IT: Available at selected high street retailers, RRP £23.99.
